  1. When to Work with a Financial Coach
    If you are just starting out managing your finances and don’t know where to begin, a financial coach may be a good option for you. They are helpful for someone who wants to become proficient in the basics of finance, from learning how to budget or save money to building an emergency fund or creating a plan for paying off debt. If you have short-term money goals, like saving for a big purchase or just practicing better money habits, a financial coach can help you reach them by working with you to create a plan and holding you accountable. Even more for physicians and most all medical professionals.

    Pros and Cons of Working with a Financial Coach
    A financial coach can have a positive impact on your financial well–being and your life in a number of ways:

    Financial coaches see the bigger picture of how you relate to money. They can help you develop better habits, resulting in positive personal growth.
    By providing education and encouragement, they can reduce financial stress, confusion, and what it is about money that overwhelms you.
    Through accountability and support, they can help you accomplish your goals and help you feel more confident in your finances.

    At you service.

    My hospital started a coaching / mentorship program where the mentee is supposed to take the initiative. I’ve never had a coach before, so I don’t really know how to work with one, especially since we are expected to be in the driver’s seat. Any advice?

    Historical Review:

    In the ancient Greek version of this column, I answered a similar question (albeit on wax tablet) from a reader named Telemachus. You see, his dad, Odysseus, was going off to fight in the Trojan War and so he was to be left in the care of his father’s trusted friend. That friend? Well, his name was Mentor, and believe it or not, Homer’s use of the character in this epic poem is widely cited as the origin of the mentoring and coaching concept.

    The key to figuring out how to utilize a coach starts with understanding of purpose. And while they can serve you in many ways, the coach or mentor is principally there to help you hone your problem-solving skills, offer you feedback, and push you along toward your goals.

    So let’s flip that around. In order to best utilize your coach, you’ll want to 1) make sure they know what problems you’re running into 2) have some level of visibility into your work and 3) have insight into your short- and long-term goals.

    From Socrates and Plato to Yoda and Luke, history (and film) is brimming with examples of highly effective coaching relationships. Here’s hoping that yours will be the next.

    At your service!
